'Get him out our club' – Some Chelsea fans want Romelu Lukaku GONE but others defend record buy striker after apology

ROMELU LUKAKU upset thousands of Chelsea fans with his recent bombshell interview.

And Blues supporters told SunSport exactly what they thought of him ahead of their team's mouthwatering Carabao Cup clash against Tottenham – with one saying: "Get him out of our club."



The Belgian said he would '100 per cent' still be at Inter Milan if they'd offered him a new deal in the summer.

And he also suggested he'd like a transfer to Real Madrid or Bayern Munich in the future.

The 28-year-old striker was subsequently dropped by Thomas Tuchel for the draw with Liverpool, issued a grovelling apology to Chelsea supporters on Tuesday night, and was then picked to start against Spurs.

The German boss' tough stance seemed to have the support of Blues fans – and billionaire owner Roman Abramovich.

But opinion remains split among supporters – with some unwilling to forgive the £97.5million man and others happy to draw a line under it.

SunSport reporter Will Pugh spoke to some of the Chelsea faithful outside Stamford Bridge on Wednesday and here's what they had to say…

Ali, London

"It hurt the fans. It wasn't the greatest.

"And the apology was like he was forced to make it.

"It wasn't good enough.

"I'm never going to forgive him, I want him out of my club."

Sam, Bristol

"I was watching the apology with the missus and she said she doesn't believe what he said.

"I don't think what he said was good enough when you pay how much we paid for him.

"And with what he earns every week, I don't think he deserves to wear that Chelsea shirt."

Mel, Surrey

"If he doesn't want to be at Chelsea I'd expect him to put in a transfer request in and leave and say he doesn't want to play.

"But he's said he does and said he's sorry.

"And I hope that's the end of it and he comes out and scores a lot of goals."

Hareesh, London

"I don't know what the conversation was with Tuchel.

"But if it was a heart felt apology and he's got his mind set on this game then 100 per cent he should get another opportunity."

Liam, Essex

"I think the fans need to give him a bit of time.

"It's going to take a lot but I think he's got enough in his locker to prove it on the pitch.

"But we'll have to see how the players around him react because we haven't really seen the reaction from elsewhere in the club other than Tuchel."

Liam, South London

"I get the impression his comments were misjudged.

"At the end of the day if he keeps scoring and keeps performing on the pitch, I don't care what he says off it."

"I think it backfired on him.

"If you look at the interview, it was more for the Milan fans.

"He wanted to stay at Inter but they didn't want him to."
